  1. purple dress made for you
  2. beautiful – understatement
  3. we stood in mom’s kitchen
  4. my own purple dress, 2 inch
  5. heels, knee high stockings
  6. making me look grown up
  7. teaching me how to bake
  8. two cakes, one to be the
  9. bunny’s face, the other
  10. providing ears and a bowtie
  11. by the time we were done
  12. placing jellybeans and icing
  13. it seemed sinful to cut it
  14. i’m snapping pictures
  15. freezing the moment
  16. mom and etta vibrant, alive
  17. sitting in church beside you
  18. i almost felt cleansed, and
  19. had i known it was our last
  20. easter, i’d prayed harder
